Like the Tefal heads of the 80’s electrical adverts, I have a large forehead, although it is debatable whether this signifies extraordinary intelligence like the Tefal R&D chaps. I am however a science geek, and this blog is my escape from the rigid medical writing I do in my day job, and my attempts at something a bit more creative. My thoughts here do not represent those of my employer, yada yada yada… I loved my PhD and post-doc in cancer research in the UK and US, but two years of gel shift assays finally sent me over the edge; however, I landed on the bouncy trampoline of science writing, and here I am finding my way in the world of Scicomm, bouncing up and down but getting better at the moves.
